Crosby PDN, brand new old stock, size 17" with generous medium tree.
Padded flaps, no knee rolls or blocks. Flap length is 14.5" from top of stirrup bar straight down to edge of flap. It's about 7.25" to 7.5" from the front edge of stirrup leather to front edge of flap at the widest place. (There are pictures in the photobucket album.)
The seat is slightly wider, and is padded for comfort. This is a great saddle for equitation and/or flatwork because you can sit down in it comfortably.... (read more)
A saddler can widen this tree using a press, possibly up to 1cm.
Made by Walsall Riding Saddle Company in England. They have made Crosby saddles for over 60 years, and they still make Exselle and other brands. This it a very high quality saddle.
Padded flaps, modern Crosby Prix des Nations. Top quality Crosby, which should be apparent from the pictures. The color will darken with neatsfoot oil, or special darkening oil, or dye. It's actually a little darker than the outdoor pictures lead you to believe.
Comes with warranty card for you to submit; original blue Crosby saddle cover; and the British-made stirrup leathers, shown. I MIGHT BE PERSUADED TO GIVE YOU A NICE SADDLE CARRYING CASE, if you hurry up and buy this. :-)
Numbers on the saddle are 873 11 05.
The leather looks smooth in most photos, but is actually stamped with a very fine grain for grip. There is original white saddle wax in the grain, all over the saddle, especially one spot on offside flap. It is NOT discolored or scuffed!
